    Just check any information for swapping into any 88-91 Civic. The engine bays are all the same. Since you have an 88 sedan, you'll have a D15B2 engine from the factory- so pretty much any engine you swap in will require an MPFI conversion.

    Word, I drive a 90 CRX with a b16. Its definitely a good motor. You might want to look into an LS swap too, they're cheaper and the .2L extra might make you a little faster from the get-go even if it does have less peak horse power. My b16 swap ended up ~$3000. An LS swap could be done as cheaply as $1500.

    oh, and welcome :wave:

    Alright, one question about the transmission, would it be easier to just get an automatic -> manual conversion or try and find an automatic tranny that could possibly go with it? X_x
